City of Dust

Trouble
Raises its dark head
Breathes on a naive World
Beyond the Night of our indifference
Will any of us remain
Is this a repeat of The Story of the Flood
Yellow Fog 
the envelope we breath

History, Where it Ended
No life in The City of Dust
It's Coming along, in the blink of an eye
What I am seeing Doesn't make Sense
No Connection to natural laws
We ignore
We destroy
All that is left is ice
A Winter Scar
Ghost Limbs left in a pile
No one left to sing Simple Notes
No one left to cry

Poem written with the Track names From Chris Ho's new CD "City of Dust

    A dramatic picture.. I wish there would be no more floods! One was enough.. But, though I dislike to be negative, the current vision is murky!

    We truly are the builders of our own destruction, we know yet we continue to push and run in the same direction.

    A stark picture of the near future? I guess so. Very nice.

    If we are not careful it may be closer than we think.

    oh, so this is not written by you? Is it lyrics to Chris Ho's song? It's an amazing poem. A very visual way to show what is happening to our poor earth. How wonderful to have such a talented family member along with you!

    I wrote the poem around the words of each of the names of the song tracks for his new CD. The title of the Poem is his Title to the CD. His CD is Amazing. Thanks for stopping by, did you check out his music?

    Exceptional verse that reminds me of "Dust in the Wind" by Genesis, I think. You have brought the truth forward once again, Richard. Our indifference will be our doom. I will check out your nephew's web site. Thanks for sharing this.

    Chris is standing in my living room practicing for his performance this evening. He got a kick out of the fact you checked out his site.
